2018 Malian Première Division

Malian Première Division is the top division of football in Mali. Having been created in 1966, it is governed by the Fédération Malienne de Football. The league has been professional since 2004. The official name is Ligue 1 Orange Mali for sponsorship reasons.

The season usually runs from December to late August. The league currently consists of fourteen clubs and features a round-robin home-and-away schedule. The Malian champions qualify for the CAF Champions League.

In the 2017 current season, the competition started in early January, but in the 6th round, the government dissolved the football association on March 9 and the remaining matches of the round were abandoned.
